DAILY COMMENT ON PEOPLE AND THINGS
And still politics continues to run
the County Board. And in the mean
time all the county"sJ)usiness is rest
ing in peace or pieces.
Looks like that suggestion of Ra
gen's that county employes be paid
before Christmas was a good one.
But the whole trouble seems to lie
in the fact that if anything like that
is to be pulled off McCormick wants
to gobble up all the credit.
McCormick's imitation of Joe Can
non ruling by gavel proved a fizzle.
His trusty little wooden hammer is
about the only thing about him that
made a hit.
And the County Board's president's
desk probably shows where the hit

So Roger Sullivan returned and
slapped his boys of the County Board
on the wrist.
But then it must be remembered
that Roger wants to be United States
senator and can't play against the
trust papers too much.
And Jhe County Board is certainly
in bad with the trust newspapers.
Anyway, it mustn't be imagined
that Sullivan and McCormick are
about to become bedfellows. They're'
from different counties.
It's as Kipling sang:
For East is East,
And West is West,
And never the twain shall meet.
